Those are pretty slick. What kind of fuel do you use for yours?

I use denatured alcohol. You can use everclear but it is expensive you can also use rubbing alcohol but it has water in it, I use denatured alcohol from anywhere that supplies paint. It is the cheapest and cleanest burning. I will upload a video if I can figure out how That I have on my phone showing 2 cups of water at a rolling boil. using just 3 oz of fuel.

That looks cool man.

I built the SuperCat stove (similar) and simmer cat stove - they're here:

They work surprisingly well.

Yeah, an MSR or even a Coleman multi-fuel is a good primary stove to have stashed away. I backpacked with a Whisperlite for years and you almost can't wear them out. But these little penny stoves are a fantastic backup. They're as small as you can make a stove and super effective.

I have a few alcohol stoves. my smallest is made from one an Amp energy can (the small red bull sized can). It works great. The weight is almost nonexistent.
